March may mean sunnier days in Vegas and a downtown St. Patrick’s Day party but it also means basketball madness. College basketball fans nationally gear up to watch the biggest tournament of the year.
March is one of the best times of year to watch college basketball as the best teams in the country compete in a winner-take-all extravaganza. After the big football game in February, the basketball mania this March offers a whole month of watch party events across the country.
What Is March Mania?
This basketball madness happens in March, also known as March Mania. The tournament is played by 68 teams and holds 67 games over 19 days. It’s a jam-packed season that basketball fans go crazy over.
In 2019, Virginia won against Texas Tech with a final score of 85-77. Last year was the first NCAA Tournament Championship for the Cavaliers. The college basketball teams favored this year include the Gonzaga Bulldogs, Kansas Jayhawks, Baylor Bears, and Louisville Cardinals.
